House Democratic Campaign Arm Open to Anti-Choice Candidates

Congressional Democrats’ political fundraising arm is open to anti-choice candidates, according to the organization’s chair. “There is not a litmus test for Democratic candidates,” Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), told The Hill in an interview.

The absence of a litmus test on abortion rights would clear the party’s campaign coffers for candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives who don’t support abortion rights. DCCC Communications Director Meredith Kelly didn’t say whether that would translate into a proactive effort to court and fund anti-choice candidates seen as electable in red districts.”
